Nowhere to Run, Nowhere to Hide: Offender Monitoring on the Web

My Post last week highlighted the steps some states have taken to physically monitor sex offenders via GPS tracking units. This week I will take a quick look at how all states have established an online method to monitor these offenders.

Stateline.org recently published a comprehensive study of statewide sex offender databases which details the capabilities of sex offender databases nationwide. As a result of the Adam Walsh Act (see: GovWin's report:: Sex Offenders – New Federal Mandates, No Funding, and Competition-Limiting Provisions ) every state currently has a searchable online sex offender registry. Although there are no longer opportunities for vendors to build these databases from the ground up, states occasionally release solicitations for upgrades or overhauls of their databases. For example, Nevada is in the source selection phase of a solicitation for enhancements to its sex offender registry, and Connecticut is in also in the source selection phase of a similar upgrade.

With states across the county facing severe budget cuts it is important to note that any non essential upgrades to these databases are likely to be cut or put on hold.
